1 My God, thy table now is spread, thy cup with love doth overflow; be all thy children thither led, and let them thy sweet mercies know.
2 O let thy table honored be, and furnished well with joyful guests: and may each soul salvation see, that here its sacred pledges tastes.
3 Drawn by thy quickening grace, O Lord, in countless numbers let them come and gather from their Father's board the Bread that lives beyond the tomb.
4 Nor let thy spreading Gospel rest till through the world thy truth has run, till with this Bread all men be blest who see the light or feel the sun.
